Avocados.

There's a board member at work who owns an avocado ranch. The other day he brought in two giant pallets of avocados for the office. There were so many, I gladly grabbed a few and made my way back to my desk.

These are Ettinger avocados. They're the biggest, brightest, most mutant-planet looking avocados I've ever seen. Here's a photo to give you an idea of its size.


Anyway, I grabbed four of these suckers and I have no idea what to do with a single avocado that's the size of a Los Angeles studio. Anyone have any recipes they feel like sharing? Anyone feel like coming over for a guacamole party?

Avocados for days....

Yes to the guacamole party! I live in LA too, so it's totally realistic...

I love avocados! An easy way to make guacamole is to just buy the premade spice package at the grocery store and mix with mashed avocado. I like to make fish tacos with slices of avocados. AND avocados are awesome with scrambled eggs. I've been wanting to try slices cooked in grilled cheese. AND now i'm starving. Thanks for that.

TARA - I had actually been thinking of hosting my own little LA bloggers get-together last year. It never happened because I'm full of excuses and also poor and lazy and full of excuses. Maybe one day I'll get around to it. PS: if you beat me to it, please send me an invite.

MELISSA - I might be willing to fogo the idea of avocados in a sweet dish, but I put my foot down with chocolate.

JESSICA - I love fish tacos too! But somehow I've totally overlooked the avocado option. I may have to further this investigation...

I used to work a produce department and we called them green avocados. People preferred the hass avocados.

This is like a dream come true for me!! We have a Mexican restaurant nearby that puts oranges and feta cheese into their guacamole...sounds kinda crazy but it's AMAZING. I'm jealous I can't come to this guac party!

So sorry! I completely forgot about your hatred of chocolate.

I'd say that you should try this:

...but your avocados are probably all used up by now.
